Her paintings are revered for beauty, but are also considered culturally significant for their realistic portrayals of Southern plantation life in the 20th Century.
Hunter spent her life of plantations, first as a worker and then as a artist. All of her work was inspired by her real life experiences. She was fully self taught but her advanced technique and use of color garnered her national recognition by the arts community.
